Leán is a trio formed by Silke Clarysse, Otto Kint and Gielis Cautaers. In 2014 they met in Brussels and decided to share their passion for world music. They successfully combine guitar compositions from African, Latin-American and Mediterranean origin with a jazzy double bass and subtle handpercussion. Silke studied classical guitar with Raphaella Smits and Adrien Brogna at the Lemmensinstitute of Leuven. Gielis graduated in percussion with Leo Ouderits. Subsequently, he studied two years of jazz vibraphone with Guy Cabay at the "Conservatoire de Bruxelles". Otto finished his master studies at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels with Christophe Wallemme, Christophe Devisscher and Bart Denolf.
